Last year we added some fatali peppers to an oak barrel of Four, lending it a fruity flavor and some heat as well. We enjoyed that batch quite a bit and plan to do a blend of three barrels this go round, all of which were brewed at different times ranging from April 2009 to just a month ago (December 2010). The barrels also have different yeasts and bacteria in them as well which should make for a pretty complex profile.

Dis be a 2013 bottle. Pours a crystal yellow with a glass surface. Smells tart, some funk, some skunk, a touch of bell pepper and lemons. Flavor is a bit more tame with some tart, some grain and corn, some mild funky manure. Thin bodied with sharp, tight hi carb and a dry finish. Nice beer. Nothing special from this bottle, but pleasant.

Bottle from last year (2013). Pours crystal clear pale orange golden, medium creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is tart lemon, oak and a bit of funkiness. Flavor is white whine, oak, light sweet and light plus tart. Pepper spice comes on mid swallow and builds to a pleasant, not overwhelming, heat level. Spiciness lingers to the far finish. Lightish body, medium carbonation. I really really like this beer. Why did I not buy more???

Bottle at home. Pour is clear golden with a small white head and decent lacing. Lavender, biscuit, hibiscus, straw, pepper, heavy sweetness - which I think Im picking up from the peppers - vanilla, and dough in the aroma. Taste is sweet peppers - really reminds me of a nice habanero sauce - lemon peel, lactic, oakiness, grassy, vanilla, yogurt, and ginger with some heat on the backend leading to a lightly tart finish. Light body with medium carbonation. The integration of the peppers in this one was done well and not really sour at all. . .much more of a saison to me. Cool beer.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Current release, only a couple months old. Light, hazy, golden, yellow. Awesome, aromatic aromas of fresh ginger, lemon, lime and probably capsicum. Kinda reminiscent of a Sprite or 7up in some ways. Perfect IMO. Mouthfeel is full, yet light and refreshing, with a mild-medium sour tartness that highlights the spice perfectly. Similar flavors of spicy ginger, lemon, lime, and buttery oak, are contrasted by a long, lingering spicy finish. I can't define a "chili flavor", though there is definitely capsicum in this beer, because it definitely cleared out my sinuses, warmed my face and warmed my belly. A very unique beer in that regard. You definitely need to enjoy sour beer and "spicy things" in order to even consider drinking this beer. I love it! I will definitely be buying more of this next time I see it. Wow! Delicious! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

On draught at Saraveza for the 2014 Portland Farmhouse and Wild Ale Festival. Slightly cloudy light golden color. Aroma is fresh ginger ale, light spice, and yeast. Taste is rustic farmhouse, with an earthy note from the chili. The chili sneaks up in the finish, to provide a little heat that pairs well with the wheat and farmhouse components.

Pretty sure this is a fresh batch. Pours translucent hazy with plenty of white foam. And hey, this is pretty good!

Smells like salty lambic(!). Lemony, a tad sour, great citrus character. Mild peppers in the back. FAR better than the last time I had this.

A - poured a hazy yellow with a small lasting creamy white head. S - Nice lightly tart saison like. Some funk, straw, lemon zest, yeast ad chili powder. M - light body and lightly tart with a dry and quite spicy end. T - nice lightly tart lemon juice and zest, yeast, light barrel funk, light and then the chilies. O - a nice barrel aged saison, lightly tart, citrusy, the right amount of yeast and then the fatali. Feels disparate to me, Good beer with a chili afterthought.
